The is a beautiful, peaceful, garden near the shore of Lake Harriet. Perfect stop on a bike trip, or just a drive around the lakes.

We have been visiting the Lake Harriet rose Gardens for many years. If you are a rose lover and enjoy growing roses especially in Minnesota climate, it is a lovely visit.The rose aroma is terrific and I always bring my camera along.

The place is beautifully. It's all green and a lot of Flowers, some fountains. If you like the nature is a good place to go, there's space to ride bikes, to walk and run. Even to sleep. It's good for all Amoy spend some time.

If you're in the lakes area, this is adjacent to Lake Harriet, and Lyndale Park. Take a detour from Harriet, and stroll through this Rose Garden (check seasonality), and also the Lyndale park next door. Lovely spot for a picnic in the grass.

There is a series of gardens in the Lake Harriet area-the Rose Garden, the Perennial Garden, the Peace(or Rock) Garden and the Trials Garden. They are sometimes called the Lynndale Park Gardens. We visited the Rose Garden about two weeks late to see the peak blooming time, but it was clear there was well over 200 kinds of roses blooming... More

The rose garden is basically several plots of roses. Don't expect incredible landscaping or arbors to use as prom picture backgrounds or anything. Not knowing anything about roses myself, I may just be missing the allure, but there's not much to see here.

We stopped to walk through the gardens on a steamy Tuesday. Fun to see the beautiful colors of roses, the organization of the different colors and the fountains and art along the way. I'll be back!
